A monthly deal that can’t be beat! If you have an account at Bank of America or Merrill Lynch, you can receive free admission to area museums on the first full weekend of each month through Museums on Us ®. This would be the first consecutive Saturday and Sunday of the given month. This is not just for museums and centers in your hometown, but anywhere in the US.
Be prepared to show a photo ID and a valid Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card. Call the museum before heading out to be sure that it is open and accepting the promotion for that month as special exhibitions, ticketed shows and fundraising events are excluded.
As always, please call ahead to verify as promotions have been known to change
Be sure to request the audio-tour of the History Center’s permanent exhibits – it is included for free. Since you’ve saved a few bucks on the admission, be sure to check out the fabulous little gift shop on the way out. It’s loaded with fun Florida themed items.
Preview the galleries of American Art including areas containing contemporary graphics and ancient Americas.
Free admission to the museum and a free movie! Select one of the Hollywood movies or all of the educational presentations. Check on-line to see the weekend features.
Admission to the museum and grounds is included. Make a day of it and bring a picnic lunch to enjoy along the lake front. Be sure to take a few minutes to marvel at the 300 year old Southern Live Oak that is there.
